The third in a series of dark ambient releases based on voices provided by various citizens of stillstream
. This one features the voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves
as The White Rabbit
, and Bill the Lizard
The music is generated completely and exclusively from the voice of Rebekkah Hilgraves
All the music is generated from only 7 samples. All the weird sounds are indeed made completely from the samples, and no other sources.
I couldn't bring myself to make it light. Whimsical yet dark is my usual modus operandi. All in all I think it came to 22 tracks, and at least 25 processed sounds that I didn't use. Had to whittle it down. Only 1 sample got Paulstretched. The rest went through all kinds of other processing.
There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the ordinary to hear the Rabbit say to itself
'Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!'
...but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out its waistcoat pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice startled to her feet.
-Lewis Carroll, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865)

Great use of voice and effects
This music tells the story--I'm fascinated by the way the ebb and flow of the drone (also voice, heavily processed and stretched) follows the narrative so precisely! WELL done, thank you!!
